Little Miss Neat 1

Little Miss Neat front cover

Little Miss Neat is as neat as two pins, and lives in Twopin Cottage. When she goes to visit, Mr. Muddle comes to visit her house with nobody home. He makes a cup of tea, putting everything back in the wrong place. When Little Miss Neat comes home, she can't find anything, and when she sits in a chair, she is pricked by forks, knives, and spoons that Mr. Muddle placed there, and Hargreaves tells the reader, "I don't think Little Miss Neat will be taking a holiday next year. Do you?"

Little Miss Neat First Edition


  • She is one of the ten green characters.
  • She also lives next door to Miss Late and Miss Fickle.
  • She got kissed by Mr. Messy in 'An Invitation for Mr. Messy' in the 1995-1997 series.
  • In the original 1983 Little Miss series, Miss Neat had a Welsh accent.
  • She has a pet goldfish.
  • She went shopping with Miss Late in her book.
  • She is seen living with Miss Tidy in 'Little Miss Busy Takes a Break', but in other episodes, the two live separately. It was the debut episode for both of them in their house, so they might have got their own houses by 'Little Miss Tidy Loses a Friend'.
